La Palina Silver now regular production. The original La Palina Silver is a 2019 limited-edition cigar. It’s an exclusive for the Tobacconists’ Association of America, the TAA. But the cigars returns as a regular production line due to a positive response from consumers and retailers.
Blend and Origin
The Plasencia family is producing the Silver line for La Palina. They do that in their Honduran factory El Paraiso. The filler comes from Costa Rica, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The binder comes from Costa Rica. The wrapper is from Honduras. The blend is the fullest body blend in the La Palina portfolio.
There are three sizes available. Those are the original 6½x52 Toro, the release for the Tobacconists’ Association of America. New are the 5½x50 Robusto and the 6×60 Gordo. Each size comes in boxes of 20 cigars. The cigars should be on the shelves of American retailers soon.
That La Palina turns a TAA exclusive limited-edition into a regular production line isn’t new. The same thing happened with the previous three TAA releases. The La Palina Illumination Toro comes from Miami. From the renowned El Titan de Bronze factory. In 2016 this cigar was a TAA exclusive release. A year later the cigar was added to the regular production line-up.
The same thing goes for the La Palina Bronze Label and the La Palina Blue Label. The Bronze Label uses Honduran Habano as a wrapper. The binder is Honduran. The filler comes from Honduras and Nicaragua. That goes for the Blue Label as well. Just like the La Palina Silver, it’s the Plasencia family making the cigars at El Paraiso. The same three sizes are available for the Bronze, Blue, and Silver series.
